Let’s say you handle one of many soon-to-be-closed Tesla factory-owned shops and, for no matter cause, you might have dozens of name new Mannequin three EVs sitting unsold in your lot. What are you going to do if certainly one of them has a discharged battery? As automotive sellers discovered a very long time in the past within the gasoline period, batteries received’t preserve a cost endlessly and automobiles sitting for a very long time generally want a lift to their batteries.
That’s true whether or not it’s a traditional 12 volt lead-acid battery for an ICE-powered automobile’s electrical system or it’s the lithium-ion battery pack that powers a EV. That’s why automotive dealerships for standard automobiles have battery tenders, heavy obligation chargers that may be wheeled across the lot to whichever automotive might need a lifeless starter battery.
After all, to recharge an EV’s battery, you’re gonna want an even bigger charger.
After Tesla lately introduced that it’ll will probably be transferring all gross sales on-line and cease promoting automobiles at their manufacturing facility owned showrooms, PlainSite.org, a web site that payments itself as “the legislation in plain sight, and information too,” checked out a few manufacturing facility shops within the San Francisco space. Each the San Francisco and Burlingame places had been open, for each gross sales and repair, and PlainSite tweeted out images of each shops.
On the Burlingame, CA Tesla showroom and repair heart, although, PlainSite observed dozens of unsold Mannequin 3s filling their lot. Contemplating a whole bunch of 1000’s of shoppers gave Tesla deposits on Mannequin 3s and contemplating these folks waited years for mass manufacturing of the Mannequin three to start, it’s stunning a manufacturing facility retailer has that a lot stock. Positive, conventional automotive sellers usually have a whole bunch of unsold automobiles in inventory, however these sellers aren’t promoting what might be essentially the most anticipated new sedan in a long time.
